    Proper Yeats Country wildly scenic and leafy us wanting to stay longer
    Something wildly romantic about Rosses Point. The sky was a fascinating ever changing landscape in itself whilst we were there, as was the sea. Watching the hardy junior sailors in the World Championship at the Sligo Yacht Club was wonderful, so independent and capable.

    Coastal Viewing
    Beautiful area to go and relax. Beautiful views with many stopping areas. Parking - There is several dedicated parking lots that are paved and easily accessible. Many entry points to the beach or up to Bowmore Head Battery which you can see all the way down the coastline.

    Perfect vacation spot
    We stayed at a great Airbnb on the water (next to Harry's pub), my husband and son golfed at the amazingly beautiful course up the street, I walked the coastal trail and explored the cliffs and beaches. This was such an amazing place to stay, the trails were well marked and had little boards explaining the plants & animals along the path and giving the history of the buildings, ruins, and islands you could see. Ocean/mountain/farms to look at - just gorgeous in every direction!

    The Hot Box Sauna
    The HotBox Sauna is the best activity in Rossespoint. It’s a lovely log fire sea side sauna right next to a coffee shop, a restaurant and the tidal pool! Worth visiting any day any time of the year!!

Where do I start? The booking system is very poor for group bookings. The staff are unhelpful when approached for support with the ridiculously complicated booking system. The topography of the land is not clearly marked on the website. There are bright lights illuminating the site making it difficult to sleep or see the night sky. There is also CCTV watching everything but this is not mentioned in any T&C’s. Yet they are not responsible for anything that happens to you on site. Basically, it’s Belsen by the sea. Avoid unless you really have to!

Visited friends and stayed in an airBnB Just a beautiful place. Relaxed and so chilled. Very little open as went too early in the season but not an issue for us. Amazing Chinese takeaway!
Had a wonderful night in Sligo.
People just lovely and friendly. Absolutely loved it!

So I went here with my son and soon you be ex wife, we decided to give the infamous and well established sperm whale riding experience a go as I felt it would be enjoyable for myself and my son while my soon to be ex wife watched us from the horizon. As it turns out this was all a practical joke which was played on me by The locals. I arrived with my flippers and enormous snorkel ready to rock with the pesky misfit I have the pleasure of calling my offspring and was disappointed to find out that it was hoax. I then decided to just leave both my son and now ex wife behind and go on an all out booze cruise consisting of me, myself and I along with a boat load of cans and my sea kayak which I thankfully brought with me unlike my trip to Strandhill (more on that later). On my travels I saw many fascinating things such as a lobster or a crab I’m not really sure which is which and some sea weed. I got lost for a number of hours as in my drunken state I capsized and the large amount of salt water in my eyes simply blinded me. As I sat on a lonely rock a couple paddles away from the shore I pondered on my failed adventure. Why am I here, why is this water so salty and why do all the locals swim fully nude. In essence I had a good time besides the divorce and I think I may come back again

Highly scenic spot, with access to a really nice beach walk.
A few pub/ restaurants nearby, along with the main hotel, so a handy place for a lunch break.

If in the area or near there is a lovely walk at Rosses Point. Walk along the sea and then onto the beach
